A tale of two bridges

013114 rsRegion – Recently, work to replace the 100-year-old Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge that spans Lake Quinsigamond reached a major milestone. The span, which connects Shrewsbury and Worcester via Route 9, is now handling all the traffic from the old structure. Once the old bridge is demolished, work will then start on the second half of the new bridge which will include three lanes in each direction, matching the abutting sections of Route 9.

The project, part of the commonwealth's Accelerated Bridge Program, is anticipated to be completed by mid-2016 and so far, has been on schedule and with minimal disruption to the traffic flow.? For more information visit http://www.massdotprojectkenburnsbridge.info.
